Black Friday sales in RC spur fights, multiple arrests

Posted:

Rapid City Police were busy Thursday night and Friday morning, with multiple arrests at retail businesses for offenses ranging from shoplifting to assault:

At 6 p.m. on Nov. 22, police were called to Walmart on Lacrosse for a shoplifter stealing makeup and over-the-counter medication. Rochelle Dennis, age 41 of Rapid City, was arrested for shoplifting.

At 8 p.m., police were called to Walmart on Lacrosse for an assault. A female victim reported she was in line for bed sheets when a man hit her on the head and grabbed the sheets from her. Samuel Coffin, age 25 of Rapid City, was cited for disorderly conduct. 

Around 9 p.m., police were called to Walmart on Lacrosse for a man stealing clothing and wallets. He ran from the store, but was caught and detained by security. Cody Shuck, age 29 of Newcastle, Wyo., was arrested for shoplifting.

Around 10:30 p.m., police were called to Kmart for an intoxicated female in possession of a knife. Brandy Highwolf, age 19 of Pine Ridge, was arrested for false personation and minor consuming. Highwolf did have a small knife on her when police arrived.

Around 11 p.m., police were called to Best Buy for an assault. A security guard reported that Randolph Merrival, age 22 of Pine Ridge, was outside the store when he threatened and pushed security. Merrival was arrested for simple assault, possession of marijuana, and possession of drug paraphernalia.

At 12:40 a.m. on Nov. 23, police were called to Walmart on Lacrosse for shoplifters. Joyce Graves, age 25, and a 17-year-old female, both of Rapid City, were arrested for shoplifting after attempting to steal jewelry and cosmetics.

At 8:30 a.m., police were called to Kohls for a theft. Randolph Merrival, age 22 of Pine Ridge, was arrested for shoplifting (Merrival had bonded out of jail after his earlier arrest at Best Buy).

Police anticipated an influx of calls for service on the busiest shopping day of the year, and additional officers were on staff to handle the load. In addition, the RCPD would like to remind weekend shoppers to lock their cars and keep new purchases out of sight, to help prevent car burglaries now and throughout the holiday season.
